To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament.

This petition of certain residents of the State of Queensland notes with concern the impact of the Federal Government's continual changes to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme—particularly the financial impact these changes place upon those people who require prescription medicines.

Your petitioners therefore request that the House of Representatives act to ensure that the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme does not discriminate against those with the greatest incapacity to pay for prescription medicines.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

by Mr Bevis(from 1,045 citizens)
